Top 10 Signature Foods, Spices and Drinks Coming from a Certain Country or Region


The Top Ten

1 Swiss Chocolate Swiss Chocolate

It's not healthy, no no no... but who can resist? - Metal_Treasure

2 French Fries French Fries French fries are served hot, either soft or crispy, and are generally eaten as part of lunch or dinner or by themselves as a snack, and they commonly appear on the menus of fast food restaurants. Fries in America are generally salted and are often served with ketchup; in many countries they are topped more.

Another guilty pleasure. Maybe there are people who don't like it but I personally don't know anyone who hates it. By the way, they originated in Belgium! - Metal_Treasure

One could easily assume it's made in America considering how many places serve it. - mattstat716

Fun fact: French fries actually originated in Belgium. - NicholasYellow

You mean the ones coming from that region of MacDonaldland, right? 😉 - Billyv

19 English Pudding

Two main types of examples of English puddings: First, there is the Yorkshire pudding. It's basically a light pastry that is eaten mainly with beef and vegetables.
Secondly, there is black pudding. It 's meat based and looks like a long black sausage which tastes a bit like stuffing. It's mainly eaten as part of the Full English breakfast. Most popular with our Northern English friends. - Britgirl

Finally a clear explanation! Thank you Britgirl! - Metal_Treasure

I've seen so many different things called English/British Pudding that I really don't know how the authentic/original/typical pudding looks like. If somebody from the UK can help... please. - Metal_Treasure

I love Emmental cheese (aka Swiss cheese) - it's with holes that look like craters, haha.
Emmental cheese (Emmentaler or Emmental) is a yellow, medium-hard cheese that originated in the area around Emmental, Switzerland. It is one of the cheeses of Switzerland, and is sometimes known as Swiss cheese.
While the denomination "Emmentaler Switzerland" is protected, "Emmentaler" is not; as such, Emmentaler cheeses of other origins, especially from France and Bavaria, are widely available, and even Finland is an exporter of Emmentaler cheese. - Metal_Treasure

One pinhead more.
